    Huge boost to Pakistan. While I do not wish for any Pak player to fail, I do want Yasir to be replaced with Shadab regardless of the former's performance vs England. Maybe Shaddy can be brought mid series vs England?

    I guess we are too early to judge a player, he averages 27 (47 wickets in 34 matches) with bowl with economy of under 5 and averages 29 with bat (Same as highly rated Pandya though with lower SR) with 3 50s to his name. Along with that he is a gun fielder and dont forget he is just 20 years old still learning his craft.

    Am I the only one who finds it strange how mediocre players who have hardly done anything at the top level can be injured and miss out on key practice matches but on return to full fitness they can walk straight into the World Cup squad? I never had a problem with a half fit Imran Khan or unfit Javed Miandad in 92 because they were legends and their presence on the field alone counted for something - but nowadays anyone from Shadab to Imad can be unfit and then return almost like they are irreplaceable ... yeah right as if no one else can’t contribute their quota of 20 runs and 2 wickets, so called ‘all rounders’..

    It goes up to 37 against the top 5 teams and his batting is useless in limited overs look at his strike rate bits and pieces cricketer.
    Hard to see anything other than phainty on flatter English wickets for Shadab only thing is Yasir is worse the obsession with leg spinners has to stop bowlers whether they are SLAO Off spinners Leg Spinners or other should be picked on merit.

    lol to those doubting shadab khan, remember, his contribution in CT final...very important catch under pressure after paindoo azhar ali dropped kohli the ball before, and then yuvraj singh's wicket - and the strong decision to review the lbw. At 18 years old, showing that kind of confidence in a pressure match is very rare.

    say what you want about his skills, but pakistan needs these types of players who have character and are willing to take the fight to the opposition.

    no more of malik and hafeez anymore PLEASE.

    More of fakhar, imad, shadab, hassan ali and babar

    Forget about his recent performance, I'm happy he is recovering and hopefully will perform well both with bat and ball in the WC. He quite capable of that.

    Bad news!!!! Yasir should be in the World Cup squad after taking 20 wickets in UAE series giving away only 70 runs in 5 matches with 2 hat tricks.
    He also scored 3 50s, took 10 catches and saved at least 50 runs and let us win the ODI series against Australia by 5-0.

    Why waste a spot right now with Yasir when Shadab always a first choice.

    Use this series for amir hasnain and faheem.

    Unless Imad Wasim spot is in danger? Which it should be but wonít be

    Yes, good to hear that,

    But, I don;t think he was sick and recovered from any illness, he was just found to carry some virus in his blood on screening test , probably required by ICC before a big event for players from some countries where some virus illness is endemic. He was tested/checked up at probably ICC designated facility in UK and got all clear and free to play.

    It wasnt just him but whole team struggled against top 5 teams. Two of his 50s came against NZ in NZ, yes SR is a problem which I mentioned in my initial post. If he is so easy to hit why isnt he taken to cleaners on flat surfaces in T20s where he is ranked no 2 as a bowler.

    Things our fans need to understand is that players need to be developed and Shadab hasnt played much cricket even at domestic level.

    If we have even produced Amla or ABD after their first 10-20 games in tests our fans would have already given their verdict that they are mefiocre. Amla averaged in 20s in tests in his first 10-15 tests while ABD wasnt achieving much either. Same goes with number of spinners and pacers who developed over time.

    This is over generalization. If he needed any surgery, you could say that but not for hepatitis. Some of the best physician this field are in Pakistan.

    Standard of health care in UK is not at par with some other developed countries, certainly far lower than USA.

    Not leg spinners mate, confidence and rhythm are extremely important, I can't emphasise this enough, only a leg spinners union will understand this but their unpredictability and erratic ways at times can also hammer this point home. Having said that, the warm up games should help in shaking off a bit of rust.


    Ah, so this is what it feels like

    Pakistan’s young leg-spin all-rounder Shadab Khan has been declared fit to play in the ICC World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board has announced.

    “The latest blood tests carried out show zero viral load in his blood,” the PCB said in a press release late Tuesday night.

    Shadab was named in Pakistan’s 15-member World Cup squad but couldn’t fly with the team to England after tests revealed traces of hepatitis C in his blood stream. (Complete coverage of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019)

    The PCB sent him to Manchester to consult with Dr Patrick Kennedy, who had given the leg-spinner two week’s medication and rehab course, which Shadab went through at the National Cricket Academy.

    The PCB said Shadab would leave for England on May 16 and will consult Dr Kennedy the next day.

    The board said Shadab’s appearances in the World Cup warm-up matches against Afghanistan and Bangladesh on May 24 and 26 were subject to his fitness and team management’s decision.

    Shadab said he was delighted to have cleared the medical tests and be declared fit for the World Cup.

    “It has been difficult to stay away from international cricket and watch Pakistan play. As a professional cricketer, you want to be part of the team’s success. Having played in the 2017 Champions Trophy I understand the glamour, flavour and importance of global events,” Shadab said.

    “I am looking forward to competing in the World Cup and help Pakistan achieve success,” he added.

    Pakistan’s young leg-spinner, Shadab Khan is optimistic about team’s performance in England and believes that once the bowlers get in groove, they will start winning games.

    Khan was addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi for the first time since he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C Virus in his blood ahead of the England tour. He shared that he was supported by his family, friends, teammates and the region. However, he was extremely frustrated when he learned about the virus and did not want to talk about it with anyone.

    Shadab Khan has recovered from the virus and he is all set to represent Pakistan in the mega cricketing event, which is scheduled to be played in England and Wales from May 30th to July 14th.

    The 20-year-old feels that Pakistan’s batting line is doing extremely well, but they are struggling because their bowlers are not striking in the middle-overs.

    “We are playing competitive cricket at the moment, players are in good form, our bowlers have not been able to give their best performances so far, but whenever they will click, we will start winning matches,” he said.

    Khan said that Pakistan are missing out on their three to four key players at the moment including Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and himself, which is causing trouble for the team. Moreover, he feels players will get in a better rhythm till the World Cup starts.

    The young leggie is determined to adjust in English playing conditions as soon as possible, moreover he believes it will not be a tough ask for him as he is touring with the team there for the past three years.

    According to Khan, Pakistan will have to take wickets to control the run flow, cricket has become so fast that teams struggle to defend even big totals like 350.

    “You have to take wickets with the new ball and strike in the middle overs as well, if you don’t do that, you can concede even 150 runs in the last ten overs,” he said.

    Shadab Khan declared fit for World Cup


    Lahore, 14 May 2019:

    Shadab Khan has been declared fit for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after his latest test results reflected zero viral load in his blood, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced today.


    The leg-spinner will now leave for London on Thursday, 16 May, where he will consult Dr Patrick Kennedy on Friday, 17 May, before joining the team in Bristol on Monday, 20 May.

    However, Shadab’s appearances in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 warm-up matches, scheduled for 24 and 26 May against Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively, are subject to his fitness and the team management’s decision.

    Shadab Khan said: “I am delighted to know that the blood tests are negative and I can now return to competitive cricket. I was always very confident that I would fully recover from the viral infection and will be available for the World Cup.

    “Having played and won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, I understand the importance, flavour and glamour of global events and what success in such events mean to the players and the public. I am looking forward to featuring in the World Cup and will leave no stone unturned in helping Pakistan put up a strong show.

    “It has been difficult to stay away from international cricket and watch Pakistan play outstandingly – both in Cardiff and Southampton. As a professional cricketer, you want to be part of such games. In both the matches, Pakistan have shown their capability and ability, and I am sure with some fine tuning, we will be ready to take on the world.”

    Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur said: “It is fabulous news and on behalf of the Pakistan cricket team, I look forward to welcoming Shadab back in the squad. Shadab is one of the finest of his generation and is an influential figure in the team. His presence in the dressing room and on the field of play keeps the side geared up and motivated.

    “Shadab’s inclusion also balances what is a young but extremely talented squad. I understand it will take Shadab some time to be back at his brilliant best as he has not played cricket for a few weeks, but our first game is on 31 May and he has got two weeks to regain complete form and fitness.

    “He is a brave lad and the way he has fought back to regain fitness is a testament to his attitude and approach, which gives us the encouragement that he will be hopefully available for selection for our World Cup opener.”

    PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan said: “The PCB also had a duty of care towards Shadab and that’s precisely why we went for the best specialist in England. So, from that perspective, we are all very happy that he has received a clean chit and can resume normal cricket activities.

    “Shadab is also one of the players who is respected immensely by all the participating sides as he is a quality bowler, fielder and batsman. I am sure his availability will give tremendous confidence and boost to the morale and spirit of the Pakistan cricket team ahead of the pinnacle 50-over competition.”

    Shadab was named in the original 15-player ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 squad on 18 April. However, he was withdrawn from the series against England after blood tests revealed a virus that required treatment and rest for, at least, four weeks. On 26 April, the PCB had set-up Shadab’s appointment with Dr Kennedy, a world-renowned gastroenterologist and hepatologist with specialisation in liver diseases in elite sportsmen, who had put him on medication and advised two weeks of complete rest.

    He will have 2 warm up games to prepare and then we need him to fire in the world Cup. He is essential if we are to succeed in the tournament.

    Pakistan legspinner Shadab Khan believes his only challenge ahead of the World Cup will be to find rhythm as he is mentally prepared for what lies ahead. The leggie missed out on the tour to Ireland and England, which was expected to serve as preparation for Pakistan for the upcoming World Cup, due to a virus found in his blood during a routine medical checkup. He has recovered from that and is expected to be a part of the side for the mega tournament.

    "I was always very much hopeful because the viral found in my blood was at its initial stage," said Shadab. "With two weeks of medicine, it's clear out of my blood. Now I am heading towards World Cup. Since we are going there regularly from last 3 years and it isn't really difficult to acclimatise with the condition. All I have to do is get in my rhythm otherwise you are mentally prepared for the challenge.

    "I have already played in a competitive tournament - champions trophy - which we won. Even though we lost few games, I know how to adapt myself in a big tournament."

    Shadab was initially picked in Pakistan's provisional 15-member squad. But after doubts over his health, the threat of him missing the World Cup loomed large. Speaking about the situation, the legspinner said, "When you suddenly get to know that you have viral in your blood so naturally I got frustrated but my teammates and friends have been very supportive.

    "I had a strong belief that whatever happens, happens for a reason and for good. I was tensed up on the first day but then I told my friends that whatever happened it is done and if anything good happens it will happen. So I asked them to avoid talking to me about it."

    In Shadab's absence, Yasir Shah got a chance to make a case for himself. However, after a disappointing performance in the second ODI, he was dropped for the third game. Without their full-strength bowling attack in play, they lost both their matches despite scoring over 350 runs in each game. However, Shadab chose not to delve too deep into Pakistan's concerns but added that taking wickets would be crucial for them if they have to win matches in England in the upcoming World Cup.

    "Nowadays you have to take wickets because cricket became very fast and even 350 isn't a par score," he said. "Yes, we have been struggling with the ball in middle over but the way batting is performing its a good sign. No doubt we lost the games but we put a good fight and played competitive cricket which gives a lot of boost to the team. Pakistan anyway still hold an ability to win the following games.

    "Our team has 100 percent skills to do well in the World Cup. They are struggling (but) so are other teams in many ways. They are playing good cricket overall. Bowlers are not doing well, they are actually not in the rhythm required but once they start clicking we will start winning the games. When you missing out your four key players, it becomes increasingly tough. But there is a difference between pressure for a (normal bilateral) series and a World Cup. So I am optimistic about our chances there and we will try to win the World Cup."
